    I picked up two pork tenderloins last week and decided to get creative. I stuffed them with my homemade andouille sausage (NOLA recipe) and wrapped them with bacon. I had a bit of a difficult time boring a big enough hole through the tenderloin, but was able to make it work. It turned out fantastic. Next time I will use my homemade bacon as well (I didn't want to waste it if it was a failure). Thanks for looking.

    Wow! Those looks absolutely delicious. If you have trouble making that hole you can always butterfly the tenderloin, pound it flat, stuff it and roll and tie it.

    Thanks - they were quite good.  I do exactly as you explained with pork loin when I stuff it, but for this one, I really wanted to keep it intact (mainly for the cool factor).  This is a loin I stuffed with stuffing and sautéed sausage, mushrooms and onions.

    That is sweet looking, and that's the largest tenderloin I ever saw!

    Very inventive !!

    I think I have a tenderloin in the freezer and I just made some Kielbasa.

    They really weren't that big. They look bigger with a couple pieces of sausage crammed in them. It would have been much easier with a loin, but they were sold out.

    Yeah but if not brined, a loin would be too too dry.

    And the presentation is really unique. How cool would that look with an andouille stuffed in a Canadian or Back Bacon, egg, on an english muffin with a bit of holidaise, Heck I bet it would be good with cream gravy! That's the kind of stuff that would impress anyone! Dang, I'd buy one just for the visual, and be glad I did when I tasted it. Them little bity egg McMuffins are small, maybe have to get two......ROFLMAO. Maybe better if I don't try any....LOL

    There definitely is a cool factor! I love the way the whole sausage looks in there (that's what she said) haha. I also love how you wrapped it in bacon. The pork trifecta!!

  13. Wow I've never seen a stuffed tenderloin!  Looks delicious!  I haven't seen a tenderloin big enough around here to do that.  How did you stuff it like that?

    Started by running a metal scewer through the length of it, then ran the handle of a long wooden spoon through the hole the skewer created. Then stuck my fingers through the hole and worked it until it was bored out enough to fit the sausage. I suppose carefully poking a filet knife through it would have worked also.

    Looks great.  I find that tenderloins are so soft as is.  Pork loins definitely need to be stuffed. 
  17. That looks amazing!

    Wow, Westby, what a creative idea.

    Points for a new technique.

    VERY cool, westby! I still have one good sized link from my Anduille batch which I'm now saving to try this. I'll probably go with a small loin, though. Did you grill it or smoke it?

  20. Nice, makes my mouth water, I know that had to be good  [​IMG]
